Julie Ryder: ‘Ocean’s Gay Flowers’ - The mysteries of Australian seaweed collections of the 19th century

Date & time

5–6.30pm 20 April 2017

Event series

In tonight's CPAS seminar, Julie Ryder, award winning art-science practitioner, will describe her journey to identify the anonymous collector of an album of seaweed specimens from the 19th century. This began with her arts residency at the National Museum of Australia in 2016. Her research connects this album with others held in the collections of several Australian institutions, provides new information and subsequent provenance to these holdings, and focuses on a very prolific and largely unknown collector of algae.
